that our party has put together. you are not going to slash those. obama could have as much trouble from his left wing of his democratic party as does he from the right wing of the gop. >> yes, of course. >> heads up from the afl-cio. >> the interest groups are digging in on both sides to he can't allow rses. >> let me squeeze this in. why did obama double the revenue target from 800 billion that he wanted in negotiation weise boehner, in 2011, why did he had less access. i think the question is billion than he was looking for before. this gives him a better starting point. i do think that both sides are going to try to work something out before the end of the year because they are all worried about the impact on the economy, not just in jab, but right now while you're watching the stock market and others negatively react to the fact that they are fearing this fiscal cliff. >> he must have known that this 1.6 trillion is a far more realistic number in the objectives. why didn't he mention >>> president obama will nominate susan rice as secretary of state. >> nope, he will back down.
